Review Detail
I felt like a kid when I for the Sidestick for xmas, particularly because I was St. Anton-bound for New Year! It has been one of the most effortless boards to ride, which, along with the sick stick, made hungover boarding a lot more pleasant.

There was a lot of hype surrounding it. So many board gimmicks are just sexified marketing, but you do notice the turn transition with the Quadratic core. It caught fewer edges and floats like a dream in powder. The reverse camber also comes in handy for lifting up above the snow.

The whole board is nice and poppy, which is epic for hitting lips, cliffs and trees. On the piste it’s really stable and fun to ride, so it’s well worth the investment.
Strengths
Effortless to ride. Catches edges. Flows awesome on powder with reverse camber. Poppy. Good on the piste.
Weaknesses
None discovered yet.

Review Detail
The Sick Stick is superb in powder, simple as that. It rides like a surfboard and is effortless - the best powder board I've ridden so far.
On piste in ok to good conditions the board is fun and fast, but when it's icy or hardpacked the sick stick feels a bit dead and...wrong.
Strengths
Powder supremo
Weaknesses
Doesn't love crappy piste action
